 Simon J Charlesworth did an MPhil in Social and Political Theory and then a PhD at Cambridge University.  He grew up amidst the ruins of a traditional industrial region in South Yorkshire, his education paralleled a life of unemployment, and has worked as an independent writer based in Rotherham, United Kingdom. His work cuts across the boundaries between Sociology and Philosophy and is strongly inspired by, among others, Hegel, Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Searle and Bourdieu. His analyses are ethnographically grounded in working class experiences, primarily in Northern England, but also provide powerful autobiographical testimonies to the institutional anchoring of the systematic devaluation of working class people in the institutions of contemporary society, especially in academia. He is the author of several articles and one monograph, A Phenomenology of Working Class Experience, published by Cambridge University Press in 2000.
